Adapting an organisation to digital is much like doing it to become age-neutral

McKinsey says:

Risk aversion, weak customer focus, and siloed mind-sets have long bedeviled organizations. In a ageing world, solving these cultural problems is no longer optional.

Well to be honest, this isn't what McKinsey said, but it might have. The comments were talking about the 'digital' not the 'ageing' world.

I never thought I would be saying that the barriers for organisations to embrace digital are exactly the same as those for becoming age-neutral, but I am.

McKinsey identifies that cultural and behavioural issues are the number one barrier. if you are wrestling with adapting your organisation to the reality of population ageing then it is worth reading this article. Dick Stroud
